Exactly the same when it came out.

Summary: Bought this for nostaligia reason but hopeing with a better system the bugs will go out. The game itself is awesome but the touch screen portion always seems a little off for example in a time critical cal operation were you need a forcep even though you try grabing the blood clots it won't...
Summary: I kind of wanted to try a different type of game and was disappointed in this game. It was fun at first and kind of exciting but then it became dull and stressful. I haven't beaten the game yet and I will probably re-gift it to my nephew.
Summary: The game is not bad. Using the stylus is really easy to get used to and is quite fun. If you have played Trauma Center on the Wii, the transition is not too difficult. If you liked the Wii version, you will probably like this one. The biggest problem I had was in the cut scenes.
Summary: I would probably love this game if I could advance any farther in it. I know it's a game, but honestly, sometimes people die. If a person suddenly has a million and one aneurisms at the surgical site, they most likely would have a million and one aneurisms other places in their body.

Summary: Trauma Center: Under the Knife is a novel idea for the Nintendo DS. It's creative and it can be fun at times, but its got major issues bogging it down. The most previously mentioned of which are its sometimes doggy controlls and extreme difficulty.
Summary: (Full disclosure: The reviewer is a healthcare professional.) While playing this game, I was reminded of another medically themed game from my childhood, a PC/Windows game that put you in the role of a cardiothoracic surgeon.

Summary: I rented this game and I'm glad I didn't spend money on it. I like the idea of performing surgeries, and it's a good use of the ds's touch screen technology. The first few surgeries were quite fun, but it quickly gets really hard.
Probably really enjoyable to some but too repetitive for me

Excerpt: Having read good reviews of this game, I decided to give it a try. I initially spent quite a lot of time on it and was quite enjoying it. Ok the story segments were rather cheesy but being fairly used to the anime style I was expecting that.
Summary: I snapped this game up as soon as it was released as i thought the concept was ace! use my stylus to cut people open and perform operations!! how cool!. Sadly it was just too hard!! i did the first couple of 'levels' and got into it and then they just became stupid hard!
Conclusion: This game is quite exciting and offers a challenge with the operations and puzzles scattered throughout. However, there is alot of talking and it can get repetitive. Sometimes you have to do the same type of operation over and over as the story progresses.
